What we are doing now.

Ok, glad I could provide so much comic relief! And no, I did NOT realize it was that funny. But now that makes it even funnier! Glad I could be so entertaining! Fatty!


Soooo, this is what we are doing this morning. That, in Ellie's hand, would be a marshmallow. We have college students staying with us, and everyone should remember that in college, there were many creative things to eat because no one really knew how to cook, but everyone had to feed themselves... .soooo, Courtney has been toasting marshmallows over the eye of the stove! On a toothpick. My poor kids!



Good Lord. Please, dear Sweet Baby Jesus... keep her IN my house til she's, like, 18!!



And since things were a little slow around here, I taught CoCo to make jewelry. KK was too busy cleaning up. She's very responsible like that!



CoCo dove right in!



Ta Da!! Check out these earrings. Way to go, CoCo!!



And then, we have the "dressy" pair!! Purple, gold, and pearl.



That is quite impressive. Two pair in about 15 minutes. "KK, get that bathroom cleaned up. " STAT!



I made this. I brought a whole bunch of leather and pearls to make some cool stuff. OHhhhh, and what's that you say?!



The nails? YES those ARE mine! I had let them grow about as long as they have been in a LONG, LONG time. I can't work with nails, because of massage, and some of you know that I am now doing women's health (internal pelvic floor work), so I can't exactly keep them long. BUT... I found myself in the perfect storm. On vacation for two weeks, and they were moderately long. Sooooooo, I had them done! These are my ACTUAL nails! More on this in a later post!



Ellie is now the proud wearer of this one... on her ankle. SHe should be asurfer girl. She actually looks like one. I think if she was growny, she'd be a Cameron Diaz. Beachy, tan, likes the mini skirts and tanks, blond carefree hair. I would be Rosie O'Donnell, before she got all defensive and liberated, and... nah. I am not her AT ALL! . Gabbi, ummm... maybe Anne Hathaway. I let the sitters choose theirs. KK is Julie Roberts. (But now she's adding Tina Fey,Reese Witherspoon,( and I am waiting for something like, "Condoleeza Rice" to fly out of her responsible little mouth!) And courtney....she's Kate Hudson.



Really, I think I'd choose Bette Midler. Hands down. I've always loved her. OH LORD. Now I am associating myself with the "older" actresses. I mean, seriously, Reese W doesn't even cross my radar anymore, except that she's from the south. Who do you think you associate with?


Dang there's a BIG bird!

And for those who have not been playing along.... 10 comments gets a new post. BUT, I am running low on pics and low on time, sooooo, let's make that 20! can you do it?!

I can't get enough of Ellie! The picture with the sunglasses is GREAT! I can definitely picture Ellie a surfer girl.

Bethany said...

Poor, poor Todd when those girlies are indeed teens! That Ellie Sue is such a character... She gets her zest for life from her mama!

Nice to see you can NEST anywhere!

Melissa said...

It wasn't the "fatty" it's just that I am not sure I know anyone else out there who would throw in a picture and then say "boob shot". They would just comment on their kid and how brave they were or something. You just put it all out there.

SamC said...

No doubt, Lucille Ball for me.

Sharidrew said...

I would say Ellen DeGeneres...except for the one part. Not that there is anything wrong with that...

Ellie is the cutest diva I know! For realz!
